On Tuesday, in the Japanese Baseball League, Wrestler Kazuchika Okada was asked to throw out the first pitch at the baseball game. And the best part? He did it all in his own wrestling gear. The IWPG wrestling star for the New Japan Pro Wrestling, Okada went to the mound in tight shorts and that’s about it. He carried in his championship belt before trading it in for a glove and ball.

I mean pretty gimmicky but we get a ton of that in in the Japanese Baseball League and this was just pretty damn fun to watch.
